A Scientist Asked His Girlfriend To Marry Him In The Geekiest Way Possible

Here's a new important discovery, but also, will you marry me?

Today scientists revealed a new species of horned dinosaur elegantly named Regaliceratops peterhewsi.

Scrolling through the study, some keen eyes at Science noted something a little different in the acknowledgments.

Lead author Caleb M. Brown wrote this little passage:

C.M.B. would specifically like to highlight the ongoing and unwavering support of Lorna O'Brien. Lorna, will you marry me?


Best of all: The publisher, Cell Press, was totally into it.

"Current Biology is aware of the proposal and we are wishing the very best for the couple. I checked with several editors and this is a first for Current Biology as well as Cell Press," a spokesperson told Retraction Watch.

BuzzFeed has reached out to Brown for an update.

Science reports that she said yes! Congrats to the couple!
